Love our new Casita 2018 Indy. But we r stymied by the sharp corners of the steel COVER on our Parallax power supply. system. The cover has SHARP corners and seems to jump out and scratch us every time we bump into it. I have tried putting a thin piece of foam over it w gaffer tape...works but unsightly. Have even tried hanging a TOWEL down over the thing from under a cushion. Any solutions?

Good advice.

The lower unit on mine just blew a fuse on the PC board. Contiplating soldering in a new fuse or upgrade.

Be careful hanging anything over the front of the panel. The cooling air intake is at the bottom part of the panel. The corners on my front panel are rounded and nice and smooth. A little dab of liquid electrical tape on the sharp edges might work and not be too unsightly.
